The Dan McDougal Endowment Fund.Prior to losing his courageous battle with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease), Dan McDougal M.D. desired to see an endowment established for the Community Free Clinic in order to secure the future of our ability to provide care. Monetary donations can be made specifically for this endowment.
